ENI, Woodside, ONHYM, and Chariot Oil & Gas have contracted the Saipem 12000 ultra-deepwater drillship to drill offshore Morocco. The rig will be used to drill the RD-1 well on the Rabat Deep Offshore License.
The Rabat Deep Offshore License is operated by ENI.
The well is targeting the JP-1 prospect which is a large, four-way dip closed structure of approximately 200 sq km areal extent, with Jurassic carbonate primary reservoir objectives and an independently audited gross mean prospective resource estimate of 768million barrels.
